You can trigger an autoresponder to send after another autoresponder sends. This can be very useful for chaining autoresponders together to send a series of emails. For example, you may want to create a three-week email training course that people can subscribe to online (one email per week). Here’s an outline of how you would do that:
- Create three autoresponders: Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3
- The Week 1 email is triggered when a person subscribes to your course using a Direct Mail subscribe form
- The Week 2 email is triggered seven days after the Week 1 email
- The Week 3 email is triggered seven days after the Week 2 email
If you use this type of trigger, you will need to select which autoresponder this autoresponder comes after. In most cases, you will also want to set a delay (e.g. wait one week before sending a follow-up email).
